Sport horse importer Korenbloem are the new sponsor’s of the annual elite £10,000 dressage challenge

Sport horse importer Korenbloem has stepped in to save the annual dressage challenge organised by Brightwells after Gro-well Feeds Limited withdrew its sponsorship of the event at the 11th hour.

The £10,000 dressage challenge, which takes place on Saturday, 23 November at Towerlands Equestrian Centre, Essex, is only open to horses sold at Brightwells dressage auctions and this was to be the last challenge under the banner of Gro-well brand Equilibra.

Richard Botterill of Brightwells Auctioneers said: “After urgent talks with Craig Rawlins and Kebie van der Heyden of Stal Korenbloem, who are the official sponsors of the £10,000 dressage challenge for 2003-2005, they have very generously agreed to take over the sponsorship of the event with immediate effect.

“This year’s £10,000 dressage challenge will now carry the title of Korenbloem.”
